About 120 W 88th Street

Offered for sale is 120 West 88th Street, a four story townhouse located near Central Park. Built in 1899, this single family home has approximately 3840 square feet of interior space and 500 square feet of exterior space, including a south facing garden. The home has been beautifully maintained with renovated kitchen and baths and is in excellent move-in condition.

The garden floor with a separate entrance under the front stoop has a windowed dining room and a large eat-in chef's kitchen with views of the garden. The kitchen features custom cabinetry with generous storage and high end appliances, including a 6 burner Wolf range with dual ovens, a 42" Subzero refrigerator and a Miele dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a bar area with under counter refrigerator and wine storage which leads to the private garden. The garden with sunny southern exposures is landscaped with plantings and brick walls and has plenty of room for dining and entertaining. There is also a conveniently located and nicely renovated powder room on this level.

The parlor floor with soaring 11'2" ceilings has a gracious 16' long gallery leading into the living room with an oversized picture window facing south towards the garden. The living room with wood burning fireplace and custom build-ins has an alcove currently set up as a bar which would make a cozy, sunny office with small balcony. Just off the front vestibule, there is a large home office currently used as a gym.

The third floor with two nicely proportioned bedrooms is currently set up as a fabulous master suite. The sun-flooded primary bedroom with en-suite bath has a study leading to a small terrace with open southern exposure, while the north facing room with well designed built-ins is currently used as a home office with separate en-suite bath. There are 10' ceilings and ample closet space in both rooms.

The top floor features a dramatic oversized skylight light in the central den area which fills the room and stairwell with light. There are two bedrooms with a hall bath and a large laundry room, which could be converted to a second bath and separate laundry area.

Well located on a beautiful block, the house is all electric with the exception of a natural gas range and grill and has a 4 zone central air conditioning system.

Historical note: In 1886 William J. Taylor began construction of a row of eight homes along the south of West 88th Street, between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues. The architect Samuel B. Reed designed them in a mix of revival styles--Flemish, Romanesque, and Renaissance- enough elements to make the row cohesive, but each house individual.
